27-year-old Mercedez Jackson had a domestic altercation with her girlfriend, Haleigh Crouch, near 3rd Avenue South and Lindsley Avenue in the early hours of February 22nd. A witness alerted the authorities, advising them that they observed, from their apartment window, an African American female, later identified as Jackson, assaulted a white female, later identified as Crouch. The witness stated she saw Jackson drag Crouch through the mulch. When officers arrived, they noticed a car crashed into the concrete of the parking lot. Officers then spoke with Jackson and Crouch, who both initially stated that Jackson drove and that they did not fight. Then, after officers checked with the caller, who reiterated her statement, Crouch admitted that Jackson attacked her. Officers observed mulch all over Crouch’s clothing and swelling on her hand, which she claimed was from the car collision. Jackson was visibly intoxicated as she told officers that they had been at Jason Aldean’s, where she had two beers. Jackson consented to sobriety tests, performed poorly, and then, after being informed of implied consent, agreed to provide a breath sample. Jackson’s breath sample resulted in 0.108 BAC%. Jackson was taken into custody for domestic assault and driving under the influence.
